- the flow front
- the flow velocity
- the solidification rate
- the time of shrinkage
recorded and evaluated at just one measuring position in the cavity. This opens up completely new possibilities for monitoring, optimization, prediction, quality assurance and documentation of your injection molding process.
Robust sensor technology.
Cyclic quality monitoring in injection molds
Together with Haidlmair our sensor technology MoldUni was presented at the K2022 in Düsseldorf. In the mold Sixpack (beverage holder) our sensor technology was used to continuously monitor the component quality. Special features of this component or injection mold are:
- Use of the FDU (Flat Die Unit) as a hot runner system
- Combined with Moldsonics MoldUni sensor technology, real-time monitoring and documentation of production through mold monitoring was used
- Short cycle times due to hybrid built mold (conventional and 3D printed)

Monitoring of component shrinkage
Since the MoldUni sensor system can determine the exact shrinkage time of the injection molded part from the mold wall, it is possible to monitor the shrinkage behavior.
This means that it is possible to determine during the injection molding process whether a component meets the specified shape and dimensional tolerances.
